Pangaia unveils gender neutral denim collection made from himalayan nettles
Sustainable lifestyle brand Pangaia is expanding its product line, with the launch of their first-ever denim collection, created with former Levi’s denim designer Jonathan Cheung.
The brand has created the new denim fabric using wild Himalayan nettles and India-sourced organic cotton, utilising innovative technologies to ensure the denim is highly durable, softer and comfortable.
The pieces, which are dyed using Candiani’s water and dye saving process in Italy are then woven on a shuttle loom at a slow speed. Each denim garment will include a digital passport that will allow customers access to product-level impact reporting.
The gender neutral collection is designed for unisex sizing and come in either a darker blue rinse wash and classic blue mid-wash. The first drop is composed of three styles; a pan-sex straight leg denim pant, a women’s high-rise straight leg pant and a unisex ’90s-inspired jacket.
Speaking on the collection, Jonathan Cheung said: “The denim jean is the most democratic, inclusive, hard-wearing, long-lasting and culturally influential piece of clothing in all human history. Our work has been like farm-to-table, starting at the plant level to make even better, unique denim. This is just the beginning. We’re literally growing our future jeans right now”
